    @NBhornfan can you please explain the rule as to why the runner was not out for leaving early?

    Oh, so that was the reason Mike White had his meltdown? I hadn't considered that. I'm going to have to look for the replay.

    Well that was a stinker. I'm not sure I saw confidence in this team at the start of the game. And then when Mike gets ejected but Scott gets us closer, the assistant coaches really botched the rest of the game. Fly outs, foul outs. Not willing to go small ball to get runners on base. And the fielding. Again, I say a new shortstop for next year.

    I couldn't beleive umps gave them that second run when the ball clearly beats her to the plate, Mary catches it cleanly, runner crawls into Mary then to home plate and umps calls runner out at home then reverses and call obstruction...

    Sorry been checked out for a bit and just caught up. Ya first call was not obstruction, it was a run down. Mike White just has this team a mess. Its almost like they think Connies team the early Luna years. A lot of talent losing to less talented teams bc they are better coached.

    NB if what you say is true was Coach White just lucky with his success at Oregon? Cause they won alot of games up there, regular season and post season.
    What you said about team being a mess with talent is something I've heard just about all our athletic teams here. Is that because we have such high standards or are we just unlucky? During the Tom Herman era I heard talk of the Texas Culture hurting our athletes, which I know nothing about.
    I do know that statements like that are usually followed by "the coach gotta go" which we seem to have been doing since the Mac Brown years.

    I don't think he was lucky at Oregon, he has always had game management issues. I think at Oregon they weren't exposed as much until later in the season at WCWS bc their pitching was so elite. Also maybe Spencer was the one that kept everything from running amok.

    I just have to keep reminding myself the seniors this year weren't recruited by Mike White, the Juniors for the most part were late finds. The Sophmore class was limited bc so much of the talent pool was already committed to other schools by the time MIke got here. So The freshman class this year is the first true recuriting cycle for White. I like the class and the next two, so I have some optimism but very slim.

    OSU just beat OU in 8 innings 4-3. Bad for OU, good for OU because that'll put a little umph in their team for WCWS

    The SEC Pitcher of the year from Ark transfered from Tulsa. Seems I remember her pitching against us in one of our tourneys. If I'm right wasn't she a 2-way player back then?

    Looking at the OSU and OU lineup, they reminded me that some of their key contributors were transfers. As I was watching the game, I thought of how our last few transfers have worked out.

    2022
    Dayton - Yes
    Gilbert - Meh
    Czech - No
    Hulon - No
    Dolcini - Yes

    2021
    Cantu - No
    Jacobson - Yes
    Sullivan - Meh

    Having pitchers not work out was brutal for us this year.

    If
    Looking at those pitchers stats before they came to Texas it was pretty obvious they wouldn’t work out. Was stunned those were who mike had went for when we signed them.

    Yes she has done well at arkansas but she was just average at tulsa. The idea of a a sub 1 sub 2 era pitcher these days are gone, they are going to be few and far between. Most of the good teams in the SEC have staffs with a primary starters, middle relief, and closer. Arkansas, Florida, Kentucky, LSU, Missouri are prime examples. They no longer are riding the starter until trouble, they are moving them in advance. Its all becoming more like baseball.

    Now I still think Czeck and Simpson can be in that type of system. Where all they have to be concerned with is making it one time through the line up and then pass the ball for a different look. Still can't figure out how Czech went from looking filthy against LSU to a meat baller within a few games.

    I think staffs need to look more like okla,okla st,VaTech &Fla St. I think you need multiple starters that can satisfy all the roles you mentioned. I'm not sure that day one starter for next year is here yet. But I hope so.

    At this point why would we? We've racked up a lot of wins against bad teams and are 7-14 vs ranked teams. We're ranked 16th while RPI is 15th. I'm not sure we should be that high. Mike White has delivered very mediocre results mostly through questionable coaching not talent.

    Bring on the huskies. Just can't let Klinger beat you and figure out how to score runs against the Aussie

    Definitely upset we aren’t hosting but I like our chances against our entire side of the bracket heading into the supers. May not be hosting but based on the team’s reaction they are upset about our seeding so we’ll come out very angry and ready. Dolcini will have to be ready because Mike White is going to ride her until the wheels fall off.

    Actually, I like the West coast regional because one of the things our pitchers seem to not handle well is the heat. It got to Simpson on our own field, can you imagine if regionals were held in Austin next weekend when it's in the high 90s?

    That said, I don't think we'll get out of Regionals. Yeah, I'm that fan.

    If you didn't know better, you would think Weber St would be the regional host

    Looked up our previous games against Washington last 5 seasons:

    2018 faced Plain as a freshman in the Washington Regional Lost 2-1 She only gave up 2 hits.

    In 2020 short season we beat Washington 8-6 Plain started pitched 1 inning 5 Runs 4 earned 2 hits and 4 walks. O'leary started, Day win in relief, Drama queen got the save.
